Bédard has off outing against White Sox, gets no decision

Navan native Erik Bédard's worst outing of the young season wasn't all that bad as he allowed three runs in five innings against the Chicago White Sox on six hits and three walks. File photo

After three solid outings in which Erik Bédard picked uo two wins against one loss, the Navan hurled had an off outing by his own standard on Wednesday giving up three earned runs on six hits and three walks in five innings as the Seattle Mariners lost 6-3 to the Chicago White Sox.

In his defence, the Mariners were leading 3-1 when he left the game in the bottom of the sixth inning after giving up a pair of back-to-back singles, but both runners would end up crossing the plate as the man who was sent to the mound to relieve him gave up an RBI double and a sacrifice fly which allowed the White Sox to tie the game. They would get two more in the seventh and one in the eighth for their six run total.

The fact that he gave up five hits was not as uncharacteristic as the fact that he allowed three walks and only struck out three batters. Heading into the game, he had allowed just three walks in 26 innings.

On the good side he only gave three hits in his first five innings of work, although one of the hits was homerun -- only the second one he's given up all season. He did struggle with his control, however, throwing just 54 strikes on 91 pitches, for 59 per cent.

Bédard's next start will be on Monday, May 11against the Texas Rangers. Game time is 8:10 p.m.
